How to Pass PMP Exam? A Quick Guide

(Last Updated On: May 6, 2021)

The first time I know PMP was when I chatted with several project managers of the company and learned that they had all passed the PMP exam. At that time, they also advised me to apply for the PMP exam. Compared with the difficulty in project schedule control, I decided to apply for the PMP exam and give myself a lesson again.

Now I’d like to share my personal remote PMP exam prep experience.


I participated in SPOTO PMP training organization, and most of the company’s PMs who had passed the PMP test also participated in this training organization. As long as you fill in the relevant information according to the requirements sent by the teacher, there is no need to ask about what you need to do next.

It will not occupy too much of your time, and it will not distract you too much because of the registration process. After all, there are a lot of things we need to do at work.

Stage 1

The three thick and heavy reference books about the exam really brought me headache. But don’t be panic! Overcome the difficulties according to the learning plan provided by your teacher, and you will finally find it so easy!

  • Finish PMBOK. (page 1 to page 537).
  • Focus on five process groups and ten knowledge areas.
  • Finish reading within 8 to 10 days.

The Exam

  • Make sure that you take a good rest before the exam. You will feel really exhausted after four hours of the exam.
